I've used thumbtack since at least 2014 and while I've found some great clients, I've been running into tons of issues lately. As far as pricing, I agree with someone else- I wish the costs were set and not fluctuating. I recently did a job for 75 and paid 15 in charges to thumbtack. Another time in the last month a scammer contacted me through thumbtack and though I did get "refunded" the money was credited to me on thumbtack instead of back to my bank account. I've had numberous technical issues where the site will freeze up. Clients have also reported issues to me when leaving reviews. I recently got a 4-star review instead of a 5-star review becuase the client had a technical issue and now cannot edit the review. I can't afford to keep up with your pricing Thumbtack. Technical issues have not improved over the last four years and my costs have only gotten higher. I don't want to leave,but I'm tempted to- especially after the review issue. This hurts my presentation to clients and is like a smack in the face to me.
